Danner TrailTrek uses the brand-owned Alpine Ascender sole

A Danner-owned outsole called Alpine Ascender is what grants wearers enough traction on various outdoor surfaces. 

Danner TrailTrek Alpine Ascender sole

Thanks to its multi-directional lugs and aggressive tread patterns, it is capable of digging into the looser sections of the trail, thereby improving its grip performance. It comes engineered with a heel brake to provide users with adequate slip and skid resistance on descents.

TrailTrek from Danner renders a cushioned and stable ride

Promising a cushioned and stabilized ride is the TrailTrek’s EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) midsole. It has quite the thick construction to give hikers an ample supply of shock absorption with every stride. 

Danner TrailTrek heel cushioning

Housed within its stocky medial section is a nylon shank—an additional component that doubles down on arch support. What helps it provide underfoot comfort, on the other hand, is the boot’s removable insole (also made of EVA).

Danner TrailTrek breathable panel

Full-grain leather is what mainly constitutes the Danner TrailTrek’s stitched-on mid-top upper. It is engineered with breathable nylon panels and a sturdy toe rand.

Danner TrailTrek Danner Dry waterproofing

Its ability to wick away moisture and fence out most types of watery elements is courtesy of Danner Dry.

Danner TrailTrek fabric pull loop

To help wearers put on or remove the boot faster, Danner engineers placed a fabric pull loop on its heel.

Danner TrailTrek metallic eyelets

Its lockdown system is comprised of metallic eyelets and a synthetic lace. The open, hook-like design of its top eyelets allow for quicker lace-ups.
